  1. North Sulphur River

    I had a fun trip looking for shark teeth and artifacts yesterday at the North Sulphur River Texas. I found a large Enchodus tooth, nice shark tooth, mosasaur jaw section, other assorted fossils and some cool artifacts. Weather was perfect.
  2. I took an older Facebook friend to the North Sulphur River Texas today who hasn't been in over 20 years. His goal was to find one last arrowhead in the river. We had a pretty good morning and he found a nice Gary point. The partial plesisoaur paddle was the find of the day in my opinion. We stayed within sight of the bridge and and only hunted a few hours but had some cool finds.
  3. It's been a while since i've posted any finds but i had a fun trip recently and thought i would share. Spent about 3 hours poking around and found a great assortment of NSR goodies... I think the dark vert in the middle is Plesiosaurus but 'im not sure. The 3 joined bony fish verts were my favorite fossil of the trip for sure. Found a few nice artifacts including what I think is a Big Sandy point that's about 8k years old. Enjoy
  4. Finally made it back to the North Sulphur River after the big rains. Made some interesting finds, very similar to my last trip and posting on the forum. Again the quantity was down but the quality was good with what I did find. There was still a good flow of water in the main part of the river and the side creeks were full. Took a bath in the cold water (unintentional), these darn rubber boots on the wet shale is like walking on ice. Has anyone found a better solution to that problem? Anyway, found a bone that appears to be fossilized but may be modern cow or horse. The biggest vertebrae is about 3 inches tall and found a really worn shark vert. Hope to make it back after the rains today.
  5. Due to the hurricane I got an extra day off from offshore so I hit the North Sulphur River for a few hours. I found a nice big Tylosaur vert, small mosasaur vert, fish ribs, arrowhead and a big Native American chopper tool. The arrowhead is ugly but I like it lol.
  6. Short NSR Hunt!

    I got in a 3 hr hunt before the rain and flooding. Once the water started coming up I had to make a quick exit but still got wet. I managed to find a few things.
  7. FOSSIL or ARTIFACT?

    I found this in a fossil bed along with some clam fossils I was finding near Globe, Arizona. It was sitting in a depression on the ground near an exposed limestone fossil rift. The white band goes all the way around symmetrically and the rock type does not match anything in the area. is it a fossilized turtle shell, or nut maybe? or an indian artifact, or just an out of place rock?
  8. Fun morning hunt at NSR. Pretty good sized shark tooth for NSR.
  9. I saw the first opportunity to get back to the North Sulphur River yesterday when the temps were going to be below normal for a change. There was a really nice breeze blowing down the river. Went to a spot on the river that I have only been to once before and access is pretty poor. Thanks to whomever added the rope, it helped, especially getting out! Quantity of the finds were low but the quality of what I found was great. Found the largest Tylosaurus tooth I have ever found with a diameter just under an inch. Also a shark tooth and one nice mosasaur vertebrae. I always enjoy the chance to find an artifact, ever though they are rare, or at least for me they are? I liked the way that JarrodB displayed his artifact recently, so I photographed this one the same and it turned out pretty good. Not sure the type, could be a Marshall, usually I find Gary's, so this was a nice departure. I will be watching for another cooler than normal Texas summer day to get back to this spot.
  10. I only had a couple of hours so I stayed right below the creek bridge. I had a couple of cool finds.
  11. I haven't had much time to hunt lately but I did manage to squeeze in a North Sulphur River creek hunt. My finds were not great but I did manage to find a nice variety. The fossil horse cannon bone is probably my favorite due to the preservation. It's solid rock. Lol my grandson carried it around the house all night when I brought it home. The Xiphactinus vert, old bottles and artifacts were a nice bonus to the usual Mosasaur material. This creek has some killer flint in it so I can see a nice arrowhead coming soon.

  16. I went on a 6 1/2 mile kayak adventure with a couple of friends on the North Sulphur River. We started off the day at 7AM by seeing 2 bald eagles and almost getting one truck stuck in the mud. We managed to get the truck out and started our adventure. As soon as I got down by the bridge I found one of my best artifacts to date and a nice piece of mastodon tooth enamel. We got a mile or so in and something made me ask my friend if he had the keys to his truck that was parked 6 1/2 miles downstream? Lol he had left them in the other truck without thinking. He went back and got his keys and the adventure begin. We saw very little footprints the entire trip. We didn't find many artifacts but I filled up a 1 gallon ziplock with mosasaur bones and other random fossils. One of my friends found his first shark vert, mosasaur vert and point so he was really excited. I gave my new hunter friend all my lower quality items and didn't bother taking pics of them. The water was low in some places so we had to drag the kayaks a lot but it was fun. We were finding so much stuff that we realized we would never make it the other vehicle before night if we did not quit hunting and paddle. It was so hard passing by untouched bars lol. We managed to make it back to the bridge by 7PM which was 12 hours later. Getting the kayaks up the steep bridge at the second location took all 3 men and a long rope. I got home at 9:30 PM. I'm sore but found some great fossils and artifacts. My phone died early in the trip so I missed out on some great pics. For some reason I can only post a few pics at a time since the latest update.
  17. I explored a new creek spot on the North Sulphur River and had a good day with a nice variety. The Native American pottery and artifacts were a nice surprise at NSR. I rode over to Post Oak Creek only to find my favorite spot posted so I explored a new spot for one hour and found a few nice teeth.
  18. Stumbled on this site and remembered I had an account that I haven't used for a while. Five years later, I thought I'd post an update. Shark Tooth Island is located in Wilmington, NC, just off the shore from River Road Park. If you're standing at the boat ramp facing the river, the island directly in front of you is Keg Island. At low tide, the upriver side of the island can have some specimens to collect, but I never had as good of luck on Keg Island as I did on Shark Tooth Island. The smaller island directly upriver from Keg Island is Shark Tooth Island. When I first joined this site it was suggested that sifting would be the best bet for finding teeth on the island, as it's pretty picked over. The first few times I went out I sifted, but I learned quickly that I would actually have much better luck both in size and number of teeth per hour if I just did surface collecting. Two main issues limit surface collecting. The first is rather obvious: the tide. At high tide there is pretty much no bank to collect on. From my experience, the Campbell Island Tide Chart is the most accurate to rely on for Shark Tooth Island. I found that getting on the island about 1.5 hours before low tide peaked was most effective. Plenty of surface to collect on, and it will be growing for an hour and a half. Also, if you're walking right on the edge of the water, don't forget to look in the water. I found several that were still underwater. The second main issue that limits surface collecting is the kayak tour groups. PaddleNC I think? They would take a dozen or so people to the island and if they got there before you, you're not going to have much luck that day. Unfortunately I don't remember what days/times they would normally do the tours there else I'd let you all know. One thing to keep on your mind when you're out there, if a cargo ship or other large vessel passes by, you're going to want to make sure your kayaks are pulled WAY up before the water returns. If you left your boats only a few feet out of the water and a big vessel goes by, there's a good chance that your kayaks will be floating down the river when you're ready to leave. Anyways, here are the vast majority of my finds from the four years I lived in Wilmington. The only fossil pictured that wasn't found on Shark Tooth Island or Keg Island is the largest tooth. That I found while trying to avoid stepping on anything sharp while walking barefoot on Masonboro Island.
  19. Not sure what to make of this?

    Any ideas on this? Found in a stream bed in the Glen Rose area of texas on a friend's property. The seemingly right angle and cracked appearance of the rock caught my eye. We found lots of Graphaea a few bivalves and gastropods in the area and none of the obvious rocks in the area had any cracks or looked like this thing at all. I'm not sure what to make or it.
  20. For Saturday's adventure installment, I threw out invites to several buddies to join me at an artifact pay dig on the Lampasas River. My good friend Anthony jumped on the opportunity. We only found 3 or 4 frameworthy points each, plus brokes, but we had a good time. I got to see Anthony find his first Texas points, while I scored a new type for me (Darl?) and my smallest point ever, a Scallorn.
